Your Story

Muriel Rukeyser wrote that "The Universe is made of stories, not of atoms."  The stories we tell, of our world, of our lives, of ourselves, are all that there is.  As a visual anthropologist, I help people tell their own story.  The stories I tell come through the lens of a camera, and speak in phrases of tone and setting, of interaction and color; they detail the natural humor and particularities that are unique to my subject.  In the galleries below you'll find a selection of my stories of others.
